Anonymised transcript of an interview with Jessica, who is studying Classics at university. The sex education at her Church of England all girls' school was very basic and biological, though she learnt a lot informally from her brother, her father, her friends and reading magazines. AIDS education came from the media. Jessica has had several sexual relationships. Some of these were more pleasant than others, some were unwanted, and she talks about what both love and sex mean to her. She also talks about pleasure, oral sex, masturbation and gender. Jessica has used condoms, the sponge and the pill, but the pill didn't seem to agree with her. There are lots of different careers that Jessica would like to pursue in the future and she would be happy to get married and have children at some point too.
